    Trump scraps visit to FBI headquarters

    President Trump has abandoned plans to visit FBI headquarters in the days after he fired bureau Director James Comey, according to a report on Thursday.
    Trump was told FBI agents might not give him a warm reception following Comey’s ouster, NBC News said Thursday.
    Ya think? Maybe? LOL He's an idiot.

    Acting FBI director contradicts Trump White House on Comey, Russia probe

    Acting FBI director Andrew McCabe on Thursday rejected the Trump White House’s characterization of the Russian meddling probe as a low priority and delivered a passionate defense of former director James B. Comey — putting himself squarely at odds with the president while the bureau’s future hangs in the balance.

    McCabe, who had been the No. 2 official in the FBI until President Trump fired Comey this week, said that the bureau considered the probe of possible coordination between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign during the 2016 election campaign a “highly significant investigation” and that it would not be derailed because of a change in leadership.

    “You cannot stop the men and women of the FBI from doing the right thing, protecting the American people and upholding the Constitution,” McCabe said.

    McCabe’s assertion, which came during a hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee, directly contradicted a White House spokeswoman’s description of the Russian case as “probably one of the smallest things that they’ve got going on their plate.”

    McCabe also promised that if the White House tried to interfere in the bureau’s work, he would alert the committee, and he said he would not offer any status updates about the matter to the president or those who work for him. He said there had “been no effort to impede our investigation to date.”

    ....
    ....

    McCabe also rejected the president’s assertions that Comey “was not doing a good job” and that the bureau was “in turmoil.” He acknowledged that there were some in the agency who were “frustrated with the outcome” of the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state — the handling of which was cited as a rationale for firing Comey.

    But McCabe defended leadership at the bureau and praised Comey in particular.

    McCabe seems and sounds like straight shooter.

    Encouraging.

    He doesn't have enough of them left that can drown out the boos he'll get.

    got that right. I was just watching "Mr. Impeachable" on the tele. He just threw his VP, Mike Pence, along with his entire communications team under the bus.
